Lifelong Ohio State fan. Born and raised on the Ohio River on my grandfather's farm where I learned two important life lessons: 1, Always treat people how you'd want to be treated, even the people who mistreat you. 2, Three yards and a cloud of dust! One of my earliest memories as a child is wearing my scarlet and gray footie pajamas while watching OSU game replays on the local WOSU channel with my dad. I even remember Paul Warfield announcing. I grew up in southern Ohio and have lived all over the state including Chillicothe and Cleveland. I've been known to scream at the TV when Ohio State plays. I go all in every game hence why my screen name is IN ALL CAPS. When Ohio State loses I am sick to my stomach for several days afterward. When they win it's like freaking Christmas. I hate Michigan. I hate them more than Khan hated Captain Kirk. That Team Up North sucks. The SEC sucks. Go Bucks!


  • SPORTS MOMENT: My best personal sports moment was my 1 tackle in high school in the 1989 OHSAA Division IV state championship game at Ohio Stadium on the old field turf. To play an actual game on the same turf Woody walked on will always be the greatest sports moment of my life. That and OSU's 2002 national championship game win over Miami. I cried tears of utter joy after that win.

Thank God the in-game chat was eliminated long ago. That's all I have to say.

Comment 21 Nov 2015

I was hoping to at least get to the fourth game of the season before the #FireMatta brigade started their torch and pitchfork routine.

This is Bill Belichick roster gamesmanship. The dude's playing and we'd be ready to pressure him.

I'm watching it tonight. It has some really good actors in it, three being Krysten Ritter (Don't Trust the B---in Apartment 23) as Jessica, David Tennant (Dr. Who) as the villain Kilgrave and Carrie-Ann Moss (Trinity from The Matrix) as a Hell's Kitchen attorney friend of Jones. Rosario Dawson's nurse character from Daredevil is also supposed to appear. I loved Daredevil for how gritty and raw it was. No advanced technology, no magic and no alien stuff. Hope this is just as good.

I'm volunteering at a homeless shelter in Tampa on Thanksgiving morning. Every Christmas I make a food donation to a local food pantry and a monetary donation to a local hospital group with a great hospice center. My mother died of cancer in 2009 and the care hospice folk give their patients is a true blessing. The key isn't to donate at the holidays it's to remember to do it the rest of the year, too. Pay if forward.

I remember hearing an audio interview with Cobain on his thoughts on the album Nevermind and the words he used to describe it was something along the lines of "It was just too slick." He essentially admitted to hating it, even though it made him a millionaire several times over it didnt offer him any fullfillment as a musician and made him extremely cynical and resentful for the music establishment. I have long held the belief that the corporate music machine of that time prevented Cobain from making the music he really wanted to make and I think this Unplugged show was a taste of what he really wanted to do. It explains why this music is vastly superior to really anything else they did. It truly showed off their talents and showed how much depth they truly had. You would've never known it after hearing Smells Like Teen Spirit so many times.

We give up 34 points to Illinois our defense has regressed something awful.

Comment 11 Nov 2015

What would be a really funny built-in troll move by 11W would be when you reach 100,000 HS it automatically goes to 0. Temporarily. Just long enough to cause that person to freak out. "WTF happened to my HS?????!!!!!!"

Comment 11 Nov 2015

This is why I hope they expand the playoffs and give the "Lesser 5" best team an automatic berth. It would be freaking great to see someone like Houston bump off an SEC team in a playoff game. Memphis has already beaten Ole Miss afterall.

Comment 11 Nov 2015

The discussion has centered around whether this an effect of the players being recruited or perhaps the criteria for losing the stripe has been elevated

Urban increased the criteria for sure. I do NOT think this is an indication that our 2015 recruiting class stinks. I think that's kind of silly. Urban doesnt recruit bad players. People forget Eli Apple didn't lose his black stripe for a long time. I think he didn't lose it until spring of his 2nd year here. Look how he turned out. The freshmen this year just have too many NFL Draft picks ahead of them on the depth chart.

I just want to win the B1G first. No guarantee Kiffin doesn't pull a Kiffin in a key game down the stretch and they blow their chance.

I'm glad they didn't eject Perry for that hit because it was clear he wasn't trying to be malicious. I lost a lot of respect for Minny after the game Saturday as they have a thread on their forums about how it was blatant targeting. My ass it was.
